Personal Question
Jan 21, 2007

Dear Dr. Bob, I am an Italian 31y/o man dating a 30 y/o HIV pos bloke. I don't want to sound indelicate, but how many times in your long-term relation with (gorgeous) Dr. Steve have you guys experienced an unexpected condom failure? Any suggestion on the specific features a condom should have for the best protecion ever? Thanx for taking your time in reading, and I hope not to have intruded your intimacy too much.

Lorenzo

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hi Lorenzo,

An "unexpected condom failure"!?! Is there ever such a thing as an "expected" condom failure?

In our 13-year torrid romance, we've experienced exactly zero condom failures! Magnums and Astroglide have never failed us. Knowing and utilizing proper condom technique and remembering always that "lubrication is your friend" have served us well, even while having the kind of wall-socket sex that can light up the entire neighborhood.

Stay safe. Stay well.

Dr. Bob
